Name
SetDisplayAttributes -- change attributes of current display (V4.5)
Synopsis
SetDisplayAttributes(table)
Function
This function can be used to change one or several window attributes of the current display with a single function call. It is a very powerful function that gives you the utmost flexibility for dealing with your displays. Almost all attributes of the display can be changed on the fly using this function. For example, you can make a display sizeable or borderless with this function.

You have to pass a table containing a collection of attributes that you want to modify to this function.

Here is a list of display attributes that you can modify using this function:

BGPic:
Allows you to exchange the BGPic currently associated with this display. This is basically the same as calling DisplayBGPic(). The advantage of exchanging BGPics with SetDisplayAttributes() is that you can change other display attributes at the same time. To exchange the BGPic for this display, simply pass the identifier of the new BGPic in this tag.

Width, Height:
These allow you to change the dimensions of the current display. This is the same as calling ChangeDisplaySize(). You can specify either a direct value of a string containing a percentage specification (e.g "200%"). Starting with Hollywood 7.0 you can also set these tags to the special constant #NATIVE. In that case, Hollywood will use the dimensions of the display's host device.

X, Y:
Allows you to change the position of the current display. This is the same as calling MoveDisplay(). You can either specify a direct value or one of Hollywood's special coordinate constants.
